We came here for two nights after a few days in the main town of Marrakech and the Atlas mountains. It provided a lovely tranquil retreat. The staff were welcoming and friendly, the house beautifully decorated and the pool area fabulous!
Staff couldn't have been more helpful and although we didn't use the free driver facility as we'd already been in and around the city, it was nice to know it was there. It was really helpful to be able to pay for a late checkout on our last day as the flight wasn't until evening time.
Breakfasts were wonderful - french pastries, hot chocolate, fruit, yoghuts, eggs - different on both mornings we were there - our kids thought they'd died and gone to heaven!
The only thing I'd say was that it's more of an adult type environment - our children are 8 and 10 and like to play and splash around in the pool and I was conscious of the noise and splashing that they were making. Having said that, we more or less had it to ourselves some of the time so it wasn't really a problem.
There is a large shopping complex just opposite it which we went to for lunches as the eateries there were relatively cheap and child friendly. There are other nice restaurants nearby for evening meals too. There's also a large Carrefour supermarket under the shopping mall so you can stock up there with pastries / fruit / alcohol (which staff are fine with you having to drink by the pool or in rooms, and will even supply you with bottle opener!) etc for lunches anyway.
Hotel also has various excursions on offer which looked great, though they weren't cheap.
We loved it! Would definitely go back.
